question about Steamed Crab Claw with Egg White

Steamed crab claw with egg white is an item featured at many restaurants. I've always been intrigued but have never tried it before, since I don't like most forms of eggs (most certainly not, if it's purely egg white).

I'm thinking about trying it once and for all. But what is the liquid that the crab claw sits in? Is it pure egg white? Or is it some type of broth that contains a little bit of egg white? I can eat broth that contains a little bit of egg, like those corn egg soup with chicken/crab. On the other hand, I would be put off it that thing is pure egg white.

Not a little bit but also not 100% egg white.

It is broth with egg white added to make it into a savoury custard after steaming. The broth can be chicken or seafood or crab

Okay, thanks.
Is it more broth or more egg? Or does it depend on the restaurant?
I can handle flan and egg-drop soup. I guess I'll give it a try, even though 250HKD is a lot to throw down if I don't like it.
